at Women's Center
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Support for women who feel loss
of control in relationships is the focus of "Reclaiming Our Lives," a six-week
discussion group that meets Wednesdays beginning Oct. 20 from 6:30 to 8:30
p.m. at the University of Iowa Women's Resource and Action Center (WRAC).
The group will provide social support and information
regarding abusive relationships, as well as information regarding community
"Women dealing with emotional, physical or sexual
abuse from their partner often feel isolated and alone," says WRAC Group Coordinator
Keri Neblett. "'Reclaiming Our Lives' provides a safe, confidential and nonjudgmental
atmosphere for women to connect with a community of women in similar situations,"
Please call the Women's Center at 335-1486 to register
or to arrange for accommodations and child care.
